unconscious in your mam's case look likes hypoglycemic encepalathy,since CTreport came as norma?,contrastCT is another option, she will regain consciousnes after effective control of hypertension,but deep evaluation is necessary.

hi welcome to healthcaremagic
it looks like haemmorhagic stroke and i guess she has got multiple problems..till she gets out of the ventilator her condition is not stable..it will take atleast a week to get a clear picture..her condition will improve gradually..

hello,
since your ct report is normal ,mri and ecg should be done to find out the cause wheather iscemic or hemorrhagic. since bp is high it may be hemorrhagic.its difficult to say when she will regain consciousness.but wait for some days for her condition to be stable.then she will gain consciousness.

YOU HAVE MENTIONED 50/130 BP OR IS IT 130/50? if 50/130 is very unuasual case,now contrast CTdone ALSO normal means very less DAMAGE MIGHT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN BRAIN, HOWEVER MRI NEED TO BE DONE,LOW BP might be due to secondary (left,most of cases) heart failure following arrithimias developed by many more reasones eg left ventricular hyprotrophy,MI&MANY MORE ,see that HYPOTENSION IS NOT good sign for any one,who had been suffering from long standing NIDDM&HTN,even for docs it is very challing to to get it to stabel BP,1)ONCE BP ACHIVED NORMAL SOME DAYS,2) HEART SHOULD BE IN GOOD CONDITION, ENOUGH TO PUMP BLOOD(DIAGNOISED BY ecg,echo angiogram etc) OUT OF HEART WITH HR70-80/MIN,SHE VL SURVIVE OTHERWISE GOD KNOWS,LET GOD BLESS YOUR MOM,ALL THE BEST.

My friends husband had a heart attack yesterday and when he collapsed he hit his head on the water cooler. Do not know how long before someone found him. They put 4 stents in however he has not regained consciousness? They said they were keeping his body temperature down and now they are going to gradually warm his body temperature. Not sure if there is any brain damage issues they have not told her. He is on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicaine. He is 54 years old not sure of his weight but he is definitely not overweight and is active. Does not smoke.

My grandmother has had an ischaemic stroke about 9 days ago. She was started on conservative treatment. On the third day ct scan revealed haemorrhagic transformation within the infarct but not big enough to warrant surgery . She has been in ICu now for 11 days in a semi conscious state gas ranging from 9 - 11. It was a left mca stroke affecting the temporoparietal region. When will she regain consciousness?

my wife passed out while at the nail salon. she began to snore. went limp, and was wet and clammy. She regained conciousness, 911 was called, she responded. She refused to go with them to the hospital for a check up. When she stood up, it was noticed that also became incontinent. All she wanted to do is come home and sleep.

Hello, In November after visiting gym I ve got stuffed and 100% plugged nose, later developed chest caugh, pain, tiredness, thought I might have had pneumonia.. Took a lot of rest, lung teas, herbal tinctures, veget. and fruit juices etc. Lung Xray was OK. 2 weeks of antibiotics didn t clear it up. Up to now having smelly yellowish mucus coming out of my Bronchi s. Much worse after any kind of small walk, excercise. I am very concerned, it feels like infection in my chest that is not going away. Dr. ordered spirometry and metacholine tests, that suggested mild Asthma. Recommended cortison puffers only. I gave sample of yellow mucus - came out as inflamation only. What should I do next? So far I stayed off work last 3 months, taking care of myself, it seems getting slowly better until I go for a little walk when symptoms come back big time. What other test should be done to find out the real cause? I feel, that if it is not cleared, it will be getting worse over time. I used to do a lot of sports here as well as in Europe since childhood, until 3.5 months ago, and I am very worried about the future of this medical issue. Thank You, Radka

A 150 lb,62 year old man had a chronic productive cough, exertional dyspnea, mild cyanosis, and marked slowing of forced expiration. His pulmonary function and laboratory tests follow: Frequency 16 breaths/min alveolar ventilation 4.2 L/min (Assume 150 ml anatomical dead space) vital capacity 2.2 L functional residual capacity 4.0 L total lung capacity 5.2 L maximum inspiratory flow rate 250 L/min maximum expiratory flow rate 20 L/min PaO2 62 mm Hg PaCO2 39 mm Hg Pulmonary function tests after bronchodilator therapy: frequency 16 breaths/min alveolar ventilation 4.35 L/min VC 2.4 L FRC 4.0 L TLC 5.2 L Max inspiratory flow rate 250 L/min max expiratory flow rate 23 L/min PaO2 62 mm Hg PaCO2 38 mm Hg Questions: 1. What is the disorder this man has? 2. Is this primarily a restrictive or obstructive disorder? Why? 3. Why is the bronchodilator therapy ineffective in this man? 4. What causes hypoxemia? 5. Calculate the residual volume (RV) for this person before and after the bronchodilator therapy. 6. What is the cause of this altered RV? 7. Calculate the tidal volume (TV) for this man before and after the bronchodilator therapy. 8. Is each TV normal or altered? 9. Calculate the minute ventilation for this person before and after the bronchiodialator therapy? 10. Is each minute ventilation normal or altered?

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.

My husband complained of shortness of breath. He was sent to get a pulse oximetry on room air. Results showed 80% sat. Dr. was notified and he requested the test be repeated the next day with the same result. (Patient was already using supplmental oxygen.) I told Dr. that my husband seemed to be unconscious most of the time (I could not arouse him), when he was awake, he constantly dropped and spilled things, and he was just sick acting. Patient was sent home. Three days later, my husband was taken to the ER because he couldn t breathe and started having seizures. Dr. said his problems were sudden onset and could not have been diagnosed three days earlier when he was in the doctor s office. He spent 50 days in the hospital, about 40 of them on a ventilator. Could he have been diagnosed earlier than his ER visit based on his test results and symptoms?
